Leading Glasgow newspaper, the Evening Times, dedicate a page lead to Eagle Couriers’ fight against the city council, thanks to a media campaign by Edinburgh PR experts, the Holyrood PR.

The Scottish courier firm is preparing to mount a fresh legal challenge to Glasgow City Council over its parking laws, after a driver from the firm received a parking ticket three minutes after leaving his motorbike in the city centre to collect a package.

The dispute centers on the council’s refusal to recognise motorbikes operated by Eagle Couriers as goods vehicles.

The firm is also outraged by the fact only part of the bike was positioned in a loading bay due to a lack of space in the adjacent bike parking bay.

Jerry Stewart, director of Eagle Couriers, told the Evening Times: “We’ve been fined before for parking in loading bays, despite the fact our bikes are classed as goods vehicles for insurance, so we’re disappointed the wardens have targeted us again.”

The full article appeared in the Evening Times and was part of a PR strategy by the Holyrood PR, providers of dedicated PR advice in Scotland.
